states, iowa, montana, nevada, and utah, two of them are going to be watched really closely. those, of course, are iowa and nevada. the "real clear politics" polling average in iowa right now shows president obama ahead by two and in nevada president obama ahead by 2.7. then later in the night at 11:00 p.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states for the presidential race where everybody pretty much knows exactly how it's going to go and just the states where there is some question as to what's going to happen, here is a clip and save thing for you about these states. the battlegrounds. all right? states that you know are going to be important and everybody th
will be in wisconsin, where he is right now, with nevada, colorado, ohio, iowa, virginia, and florida. of course, they're sending their number one surrogates, the vp nominee, out where they're not going. is this the map, centered in ohio, virginia, and florida, is it still where the action is? >> it is for governor romney for sure. it's always been the case that governor romney needs to win florida, needs to win virginia, and pretty much needs to win ohio. even then he still needs to pick up another state somewhere along the way. you can see in his map that he's spending months of his time in florida, virginia, and ohio and a little bit of time in one of those other states that he thinks he might be able to get a pickup, whether that's wisconsin, whether that's colorado. those are the states he thinks he has the best chance. he's not spending time in iowa. he'll spend two different trips -- ending his campaign in new hampshire. he has an event in new hampshire over the weekend. he thinks he might be able to pick up there. that tells you a lot. i know a lot of republicans had hoped governor romney woul
this is the three states with the worst unemployment levels, california, nevada and new jersey are solidly democratic. the whole republican argument that this administration has made things worse clearly is not working in those states where things are, in fact, the worst. in other states like nebraska, kansas, north dakota where there's extremely low employment because of shale gas and agriculture, republicans are winning. it's an interesting dynamic in the election in that respect. the real challenge for any new administrati administration, whether it's president obama or governor romney, is we treat it as a national problem and we have huge varieties between states and education levels and gender. >> let's talk about the psyc psychology of it. are people looking at the numbers and measures how they feel? whatever the case, they're measures how they feel at their home right now. >> absolutely. it's a good media story to talk about the number that changes month to month. oh, my god the unemployment rate is 7.9%. do i have a job that pays enough? do i have several part-time jobs? will i fin
a pause for superstorm sandy. now, after campaigning in wisconsin nevada and colorado yesterday the president had three stops in the battleground state of ohio today. tomorrow the president will appear in manassas with bill clinton and dave matthews. yesterday new york mayor endorsed president obama. >>> his republican rival is making stops in other parts of ohio today. governor mitt romney was in the battleground state of virginia yesterday. this morning rom fee holds a rally in wisconsin, then heads to a couple of campaign events in ohio. >>> one issue in this year's race for president is jobs and later on this morning we'll find out how the economy is doing with the big monthly unemployment report. comes out at 8:30 and economistsesque president-elect it to show a slight rise in the nation's jobless rate. >>> more about the attack in libya. a new time line has surfaced. >>> stocks rise on strong economic data. the dow gained 136, the nasdaq picked up 24 points and japan added more than 100 points overnight. even though european stocks are falling they are still at two-week hi
voting states. if you look at colorado, nevada, then to the midwest. you would have to say in the public polling, the president has a slight advantage. they're all close enough for this to play out on election day. but you mentioned it, and they talked about the storm. incumbency cuts both ways and we may find out tomorrow whether the president's post storm leadership, the commander-in-chief, the use of the bully pulpit has helped him. when we get the numbers tomorrow we might be reminded that he is the incumbent and we have a sluggish economy. we could have another twist. >> does either candidate have the momentum? can anybody say which side has the momentum right now? >> no. if you look nationally, it has been consistent for a week. the race is tied. if you go state by state, in one state you say the president has a bit of a lead. in other states, romney has a bit of a lead or a momentum. in most of these places, the president had the luxury of no primary challenge so he has a better ground organization on paper. more offices, more people. they've had more time and money to spend on th
wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praising the president of the united states in his partnership in storm preparation and response to the disaster. president obama passed, i think,
are nevada where there are six votes, wisconsin where there are ten and here in ohio, there are 18. and winning just those three of all these battle grounds gets you to 271 in a very narrow win, but that's what would do it for him and they feel very good about those three states. >> assuming they hold pennsylvania. >> that's true. that is a big point right there. >> i think there's a sense that florida might be moving in romney's direction. structurally, that's always been the most problematic of the battleground states for obama. and if i were betting, i would bet romney carries florida. >> and we're hearing from the romney side that there's a bit of a head fake there. >> it may be. what a lot of strategists have told me is if you're going to make a play for a state, you need to do it at least three weeks before election day. so one week out, not even a full week, makes it tough. it might be too little too late for mitt romney where they are spending a lot of money at this last minute. but they've got a lot of money to spend. >> it's less a head fake than a hail mary ad. if they c
in wisconsin, nevada and colorado. >>> meanwhile, republican nominee mitt romney starts the day with a campaign rally in wisconsin, and then heads to ohio for two more campaign events. he'll join his wife ann and running mate paul ryan in ohio. >>> in 90 minutes. the labor department will release the october unemployment report. economists say about 121,000 jobs were added. it would likely raise the rate slightly from 7.8% to 7.9% last month. >>> kwame brown could serve just six days when prison when sentenced november 13th. that's the recommendation prosecutors released yesterday. the former d.c. council chairman pleaded guilty in june to corruption charges. prosecutors admit his crime was serious but say brown deserves credit for accepting responsibility and cooperating. >>> a prince george's police officer will be in court for a bond hearing today, a day after being indicted on an attempted murder charge. prosecutors say sergeant johnnie riley shot and wounded calvin kyle after kyle climbed out of a police cruiser and tried to run away. kyle was in handcuffs at the time. it happened along co
. hispanics are a small slice, but a growing slice in virginia. this is not colorado or nevada or mexico. nonetheless, hispanics in virginia, as in many of the other states, to be very heavily democratic. and so, to the extent they turn out, even if they are only 4% of the statewide votes in any given year, they can assist democrats. let me mention asian americans, because they have become increasingly important in virginia, even though they are a small percentage of the population and the registered population. in northern virginia in particular, they have become exceptionally active. they give a lot of money to candidates. they are predominantly democratic, although slices of the asian-american population, such as vietnamese americans, will support republicans. it goes to show that in a diverse population, virginia has become tremendously diverse. when i was growing up, the white turnout on election day was about 85% of the total. as i mentioned, it's low 70's today. that makes a giant difference. you can tell it in the election results. even a small slice of the population can have a
properly. those states include nevada, kansas, north carolina, colorado, missouri and ohio. >> reporter: we are in cuyahoga county, downtown cleveland. they have a long history of problems including missing votes and missing voting machines. we were her voting on the acorn scandal. freddy johnson told me he was registered to vote by acorn 73 times. turns out he was just the tip of the iceberg. two election officials were convicted of rigging the 2004 presidential recount. the 2006 voter cards and voting machine keys were lost. employees took vote magazines home to test them and taxi drivers transported the memory cards from the polls that held all the votes. >> there was a systemic break down in 2006. but if we are evaluating the situation as of today in 2012, i think it is fair to say that that systemic breakdown did not reappear in 2010. >> reporter: officials insist they overhauled the procedures with new guidelines. no more taxi cab drivers. sheriffs take them from the polls accompanied by a democrat and a republican official. >> reporter: have you seen acorn-type problems now? >> no, w
